Fox 19: Hundreds of Ohio physicians call for universal masking in schools
UC clinician, mother leads grassroots letter campaign to local districts
A grassroots effort encouraging local schools to require universal masking for the health and safety of students and staff has grown out of a private social media group for area physician mothers.
UC's Hilja Ruegg, MD, medical director of Integrated Mental Health Care, program director of the UC Family Medicine/Psychiatry Combined Training Program and assistant professor in the departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience and Family and Community Medicine, helped draft and organize a letter to area schools signed by more than 450 area physicians.
The letter is not affiliated with any particular group and outlines the science behind the the request for schools to require masks.
